  1. Carry on at this rate and we'll soon have enough to hold the next meet at the oncology dept; .... all the best colly..
  2. Although a smoker from an early age I always found the smell of Players factory to be quite nauseating when cycling into town.
  3. Booster booked for next week at Brinsley. According to the letter it may be Pfizer or Moderna. Taking a pessimistic view I've started Christmas shopping - just in case. First time in 70 years I've been ahead of the curve, I'm usually running round like a headless chicken on the 24th...
  4. I said many moons ago the Council house needs cleaning...
  5. I had a circular slide rule... never did master it.
  6. It is, like the one in Trafalgar Square, a Norway spruce which may have had led to some confusion and the urban legend of origin. It was probably home grown, why not ring the parks dept and ask?
  7. In the Sneinton version the bag contained something a little different
  8. The first fridge we had at home was powered by gas. My then wife to be took some convincing it was not electric but eventually accepted it was true after reading the manual - she never did quite believe me though when I said the TV was also gas...
  9. I was called out once to look at their electricity backup system, the place was disgusting, adsolutely filthy. I think they painted the entire interior black so punters don't notice.
  10. There can only be a few who have never changed provider - except for BT, we're one of them.
  11. I always hold her hand when walking past shoe shops...
  12. Could even send him rind the bend
  13. We lived next to a farm when first married and the farmer and I tried running an old Ford 100e engine on methane from the slurry pond and although it was err... interesting it was not exactly a success...
  14. Oooo gotta give that a go.. Edit: Asked Alexa to marry me, she told me before I win her virtual hand in marriage I must get to know her by answering questions about her favourite things.... I failed... The meaning of life?... "ask Bill and Ted"..
  15. It's spent this afternoon telling jokes, giving weather forecasts, making shopping lists and asking if we want to join some subscription service or other. It was an impulse buy as a present for Dee's birthday yesterday.
  16. The engineering on my car is among the best but the gadgets/electronicals were designed by someone drunk or has serious sadistic tendencies. Good luck figuring yours out...
  17. I couldn't possibly comment!
  18. Today we have moved, with some reluctance it has to said, into the 21st century with a new house guest... Alexa. The speed of response to some quite obscure requests is impressive, there must be some serious technology driving it. The pronunciation and enunciation is astonishing compared the computer generated voices of a few years ago. At the moment she is busy telling jokes, if you cross an elephant with a kangaroo you will get.................... big holes all over Australia..
  19. I wonder if the actors feel any sense of being slighted knowing they are there as a token to political correctness? They forgot the only gay in the village...
  20. Probably why no one stocks it...
  21. The canister is a catalytic converter and yes the do burn off to regenerate. There is a growing market over here for them, they contain Platinum, Rhodium etc. A thief can have one off your car and away in under two minutes, with Rhodium at £4000 an Oz it's no wonder thefts are increasing. One for a big truck is several thousand pounds to replace
  22. Only if you send me your card details, I'll send you a crust.... 'onest I will
  23. No just googled for King Arthur flour, few seem to supply it over here and the last in the list was from your side of the pond. Asda don't have it...
